Election 2016: Infrastructure, climate change to dominate Queensland campaigning

The ABC’s Andrew Kos reports (8.5.16) on Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull’s move to call a double dissolution election for 2 July 2016. He highlights the most pressing issues which will likely feature during election campaigning in Queensland.

‘Queensland is a key battleground state in the upcoming federal election, where 12 of the state’s 30 seats sit on margins of under 5 per cent.

‘The Coalition currently holds 22 of them, the ALP has 6, independent Bob Katter holds one and Clive Palmer has another.

‘The ABC spoke to Griffith University political experts Dr Paul Williams and Professor Anne Tiernan about the issues likely to dominate the campaign in the Sunshine State.’
